Apple releases iPhone OS 3.2 SDK for iPad

Following its introduction of the new iPad tablet computer, Apple today made available a beta of the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK, which supports iPad applications. According to information provided to iLounge by an anonymous source, the SDK itself is available, including an iPad simulator, but it does not support current iPhone or iPod touch hardware. New features available via the SDK include external display support, enhanced gesture recognizers, improved text support, custom font support, file-sharing support, which will allow apps to read and write to and from a shared folder that automatically mounts to the desktop when connected to a computer, the ability to associate documents with a specific application, the ability to generate PDF files from the device, and changes to the media player framework that will give developers more control over how video is presented to the user. The iPhone OS 3.2 SDK beta is available now to registered iPhone developers through the iPhone Dev Center.
